Reading List | Sweet & Spicyyy — More Spicy, Sweet, Wholesome, and/or Fluffy Smut

Surprise! Happy Smut Sunday…? I bring a surprise bonus post. I just put a blog about a [wholesome smut series] I found. Originally, I had a list of similar recommendations at the bottom. However, I felt like that made it such a long post. So I decided to split the recommendations in another post~ So here are some more sweet, wholesome, and/or fluffy smut series for y’all!~ This is especially for my fam that want more mature series that are still sweet, but not overly saccharine and cringey~

Also…it goes without saying, but these are smut series…so obviously NSFW!!!

Recommendations: More sweet, wholesome, and/or fluffy smut

If you want some more sweet/wholesome/fluffy smut series…then I also gotchu for those too. Woo sweet and spicyyyyy~ Like these are series that’ll make you confused between feeling “Dayum that’s hot” or “AWWWW HOW SWEEET” lololol

This one is a friends to lovers type of series. Koyori got dumped by her boyfriend/coworker. She goes to goes to her longtime friend Hijiri’s house to vent and drink away her sorrow. However, they ended up sleeping together, and she ends up finding that he loves her. He’s been in love with her for a long time, while Koyori finds this to be a completely unexpected development. It’s a sweet and spicy series of longtime friends transitioning to lovers. Yeah, this one got spicyyy smut. But I’m really enjoying the story too. I love that the characters feel realistic, and they’re actually very sweet together. I also love that the challenges that they face are also very realistic and relatable as well. It’s a slice-of-life type of series. So I recommend it if you want something that doesn’t have crazy pacing and drama shoved in your face. This is a more subtly sweet series. So it feels more natural, and is probably for you if that’s the kinda series you’re looking for.

This is definitely one of those really sweet ones. FL is a shy and naive 24 year who loves crafting and selling her the things she’s made. She meets this tall and handsome European kid (ML is younger than her) who buys one of the cute dolls she’s made. It’s cute because he also loves cute things. They become friendly, which develops into attraction, and a really sweet and spicy relationship. ML is an absolute sweetheart, but very spicy beast for the smut parts. I like this one cuz a lot of series tend to go with like tough and masculine type of MLs. I like that we got a guy who is a softie and likes things that aren’t seen as masculine. Like, good for you bruh.

Okay, yeah…I know, this is a Korean manhwa and not a Japanese manga. But I’m going with my theme of spicy, yet kinda sweet and wholesome smut series. Recently discovered it as it was just recently released. This one veryyyyyyyy spicyyyyy. FL basically grew up in a strict and suffocating household where her grandfather, the patriarch, preaches and enforces the idea that women need to be submissive and modest. She didn’t want to end up like her older sisters who were used only as tools for the family and sold off for connections via their marriages. They’re seen and treated as objects meant to fulfill his goals and plans. With the help of her sisters, she’s able to finally gain some freedom and independance at the age of 29. After her friend/coworker’s suggestion, she tries out an app where she starts chatting with a man (ML). She’s enjoying messaging him when he asks if they can call and have phone sex… For the first time, despite it being something she wouldn’t do, she makes a spontaneous decision. She likes his voice and they end up enjoying it, doing it more than once. She finds it thrilling and pleasurable but also admits that she’s only comfortable doing so because of the anonymity. That is until she realizes he’s much closer than she thinks. It’s honestly verrrrry spicy. But the ML’s actions are kinda cute~ He’s this huge and intimating-looking dude. But he’s incredibly sweet and cute with her (like he got that hottie aegyo). At the same time, he’s also very mischievous and has a huge sexual appetite (despite apparently being a virgin until he slept with the FL). There’s also bit of mystery to him. Like, is he sus? Maybe not? Cuz he just seems so sweet and wholesome, despite the spiciness. But at the same time…there seems to be something about him… OH and there’s some other part of the plot where a fortune teller says FL would die in a year, but she’ll be able to make it through once a certain man comes into her life. While this is a very smut-heavy series, I like the chemistry between the characters. But I’m also interested in the drama aspect and just really interested in seeing how the FL will try to truly get out of her shitty grandpa’s grasp. Cuz while her sisters somehow managed to help her get out of the house, she still doesn’t really have anyone that’s truly on her side. But this dude is literally already ride or die for her. He’s actually younger than her, but he’s always on her side and ready to commit his whole life to her. I mean, IRL that could be a red flag in how hard he’s pursuing her and jumping for commitment, despite having just met. But considering how shitty her family is, I do like him. Since he does at least seem to be the only one to genuinely and sincerely show care and concern for her.

Okay…At first, this might not seem to be for everyone as the characters are very, very, verrrryyy innocent/naive? Like they got no clue about sex and the way they talk about it is very unrealistic for some grown-ass adults. But I swear it’s really wholesome and cute. Spicy too of course. The art is also absolutely gorgeous! Basically, you got a couple that’s been married for a year. It was an arranged marriage, but they really ended up falling for each other at first sight. The husband is like an associate professor of animal behavior research. Like he is a total animal geek. You know that stereotype of otakus that are only knowledgable and fixated/overly passionate on their interest? Yeah. But, he is an incredibly kind and gentle husband. He’s so incredibly sweet to his wife. She loves his quirky passion for his job and interest. He loves that she doesn’t judge him and is interested in learning about all these facts from him. Their married life has been nothing but overflowing happiness. Only problem is that they still haven’t had sex yet and are both virgins. So it’s this cute and funny journey. It’s also really funny cuz dude is like kinda socially awkward and relates everything to animals. There’s a hella lot of scientific talk from him, but I just find it so wholesome and sweet that she genuinely loves that about him. Though it’s confusing AF cuz it’s like hella spicy moment, but you’re also getting a science/biology lesson at the same time…lolol It’s like “WTF is with this random NatGeo lesson??”, but FL understands his feelings and sees it as incredibly sweet. And that’s what makes it sweet to me haha. But honestly, I just find the whole premise of these awkward, but wholesome people in love to be so charming~ So although you might think the naivete is weird and annoying, I hope you can still give this a shot~

Art for this one is also really good~ This is another friends to lovers type of series. Basically we got a FL who’s always been stuck with shit boyfriends, and she’s upset that she’s never had a pleasant experience with sex. Rather, Kana finds it incredibly painful and uncomfortable. She’s always venting to and being comforted by her childhood friend who’s a bartender at a local bar she frequents. She thinks of Mamoru as someone who is more than a friend, and almost like family. After venting and drinking, Kana expresses that she’s afraid of forgetting how to feel like a woman and she might need to seek help with someone. Mamoru makes a spontaneous suggestion that he can help her. She’s hesitant as she’s afraid of changing their relationship. To her, he’s irreplaceable and she doesn’t want to lose him. However, he tells her that he’ll always be with her, and nothing will change. Thus, she gives it a try and they start these “pleasant lessons”. They’re both surprised that Kana actually gets wet and finds it pleasurable. Kana’s thoughts and feelings toward Mamoru start to change. Meanwhile, turns out Mamoru has always been in love with her. He realized she never saw him as a man, but wanted to stay by her side. Still, he uses this as an opportunity to hopefully change things between them.

Honestly, I love this series. I love Mamoru’s character in that you can really see how much he genuinely loves and cares for her. I love that he is holding back and is taking it at a pace that’s comfortable for her. There’s no rushing or forcing her to do anything. I love the realistic sense of closeness as friends, but also that awkwardness and tension as they start to do stuff together and learn new things about each other. I just love the pacing and portrayal. Also, Mamoru got a really romantic side with how he makes drinks for her~ Aside from the story and smut, it’s actually pretty cool that they have legit bartending/drink facts~ Like certain drinks also actually have a meaning behind them too. So I love that bartending is also actually kind of part of the story, and not just a random bit in the background.

I love the art for this one too!~ FL in this one is a former idol, now model and online personality. Touko became an idol around the time she was in high school, retired after a couple years, and now does live streams and modeling gigs. She got into some trouble when her manager started stalking her. She ends up getting help from a young and handsome lawyer she ran into. Yuuji offers her his help, and also helps her file a report with the police. Also, it turns out that they do know each other. They were actually high school classmates, with Yuuji confessing to her. Unfortunately, and despite her interest in him, Touko had to turn him down due to her plans of being an idol. They do feel an attraction to each other and start getting hot and bothered at Yuuji’s apartment. The next morning, they end up running into her stalker of a manager again, Yuuji pretends to be her boyfriend and that they’re dating with plans for marriage. He really did help her out. Unfortunately, it also backfires when her stalker releases the information and their photos on the internet. Touko gets concerned about how this will affect Yuuji and his work. That’s when Yuuji makes the suggestion that they make it real by really getting married. At first, it seems to be something like an agreement that benefits both parties by dealing with Touko’s stalker issue, and Yuuji’s issue of female clients approaching him. However, they do find that they genuinely love each other. They’re really sweet and wholesome. Of course there is a bit of drama. Yuuji has a secret: he was also secretly her avid fan/supporter during her idol days. It’s all really sweet and wholesome though, I swear! The thing I love about Yuuji is that, again, he doesn’t force her or pressure her. He genuinely shows that he cares about her and wants to go at a pace that’s comfortable for her. Like, turns out Touko never had any experience with sex before. So despite them starting to get hot and heavy at his apartment, he stopped because he wanted to make sure she wasn’t just getting carried away by impulse. Like the man could’ve kept going cuz she did consent. But I really appreciate that he wanted to make sure it was something she actually wanted and that he’d go at her pace. It’s also just cute of like what a supportive fan he is of his wife as a person, not as a former idol~ He’s a huge simp for his wife, and I love it~ I’m a sucker for those types of leads. Oh, and yes, it spicyyy too. Also, we got adults being adults and actually communicating!~ FUCK YES! Cuz communication is always such a difficult thing in romance series apparently. But it’s so annoying when it’s a mature josei series where grown-ass adults don’t communicate and just make stupid assumptions. So I appreciate the communication. Also, I just want to say I really appreciate how supportive her friends are. We see a lot of jealousy and petty female drama in these smut series. Sometimes the friends give the worst advice ever and even gaslight the FL. Examples I’ve seen are telling the FL it’s no biggie that her significant other is cheating or belittling her, or even blaming the FL for it. But Touko’s friends are a solid group of friends. They show logical concern and care when needed, but also listen to and take Touko’s thoughts and feelings into account. They support their friend when they see that see is happy. Honestly, I love seeing kickass supportive and loyal friends.

This another series where it’s like reunited with a school classmate and first love. On the first day at her new job, Nono caused the chief builder’s son, Keita, to get a leg injury. So Nono starts to help him out. She was a bit intimidated at first by his looks and his size, but realizes that’s actually a very nice guy. She ends up becoming attracted to his smile and kindness. Meanwhile, not yet noticed by Nono, Keita was actually a classmate from high school. He used to be a fat and nerdy kid who was crushing on the kind, beautiful, and popular Nono. Keita basically had a glow up as he started working out and losing weight. Thus he became a tall, beefy, and handsome guy. Of course he’s estatic to have the chance to reunite with his first love. As their attraction grows, things get steamy. Yeah, this def a spicy one. Especially if you like a series with huuuge, massive, beefy dudes (ʷʰᵒ ᵃʳᵉ ᵃˡˢᵒ ᵐᵃˢˢᶦᵛᵉ ᵈᵒʷⁿ ᵗʰᵉʳᵉ) Look, I’m a sucker for first love reunions~ I love glow ups, and I love when dreams come true~ It spicyyy, but I do love how you can see the love and how much he cares for Nono~ Also, this is one of the series that’s got a simple story and is more smut heavy, but it’s not to a point that overshadows you getting to know the characters and their relationship.


Anyway, that’s it y’all. Again, I’m not that big into smut, and I typically have some issues with things portrayed in “romance” smut series. Y’all can read about that in the other [smut series post]… But anyway, I do appreciate being able to have series that are mature in content, yet are still able to give you the sweet, heart-fluttering moments of romance. And without the cringe!~ I love that things can be spicy and mature, but still be sweet and wholesome while displaying a romance where you feel the genuine sincerity and care in the character’s feelings. Cuz you know what’s hot? Respect, consent and sincerity~ Toxic traits and red flags are a no-no for me. But promoting positive traits is hot~ That’s not to say that they’re perfect. They do have their own drama, conflicts, and things to grow from. After all, that’s the part where character growth comes in, and we love seeing character growth. But I appreciate that they don’t force and/or gaslight their partner and that the series doesn’t feel like one-sided self-gratification. Cuz lack of consent and no respect of boundaries and wants is not what I consider romantic. I appreciate that the characters in the above series actually do think of their partners as well actually consider and respect their wants, needs, and boundaries. It’s those things that give heart-fluttery moments and makes it feel like actual romance. Anyway, I hope you’re able to enjoy at least one of these series~ If you’ve read them, let me know what you think and which one is your favorite! Take care and have a lovely Sunday, y’all~
